Hi, is there a way make my excel sheet load up with all the toolbars and formula bar hidden, and protect the sheet so that there's no way any user can get the formula bar back again? I need to keep the formulae secret. Thanks.

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

An easier approach. Select the cells with formulas(Edit>Goto>Special>Formulas). Choose Format>Cells>Protection Tab. Select Hidden. Click OK. Now protect the worksheet. The formula bar will display "Blank".
